Kit Hill

Reviewed By mikeviettours - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

You can reach the top of Kit hill from the road through Callington. Steep drive to the top obviously, it a hill. Once at the top you will be rewarded with uninterrupted views for miles in all directions. Top place to go on bonfire night...

Slightly damp day but having explored the lower Gardens had our picnic in the shelter there. Our timed ticket allowed access to the decorated gallery and we enjoyed our walk around the grounds.

Super time with our nephew who found it both challenging and ultimately very rewarding. The guides, especially Sid and Ben, are fantastic and a true asset to this operation. I was pleasantly surprised by the heights and relatively complexity of some of the obstacles. The crew have a very healthy attitude to the right level of safety without being overboard and nanny-like. this is truly refreshing in this era of 'elf and safety overload.
Great afternoon out and brilliant value for money. Not recommended for those of a nervous disposition but if you want a challenge , go for it.

Tamar Valley Donkey Park

Reviewed By Thewoodingfamily

Visited with 2 young children, quite reasonable entrance fees, (use the tourism voucher and one child gets in free with paying adult) . Some of the parts could do with a spruce up, but the whole idea of the place is for the donkeys.kids loved feeding them and food was only 50p a large bag.

Hurlers Stone Circles

Said to have been hurled by an angry God in response to violation of His Sabbath day, these three large stone circles are built close together and vary in size from 105 feet to 135 feet across.

Reviewed By Tony G - Cricklade, United Kingdom

Worth a visit if you are in this part of Cornwall. Free car park on outskirts of Minions. Can get busy at holiday time. Atmospheric place on southern edge of Bodmin Moor. Stout footwear recommended. Best in fine weather. Can easily be combined with a further walk to the Cheesewring on nearby Stowes Hill.

Adrenalin Quarry

JUMP OFF A CLIFF:The Zip at Adrenalin Quarry in South East Cornwall, is the UK’s maddest ever zip wire. Long, high, fast. Twin wires cross the flooded depths of the old quarry, sheer cliffs rise on either side.The Zip is the only place in the UK where you can just turn up and jump. NO NEED TO BOOK! No fuss, no pre-booking, no hours of waiting around – we throw you off our cliff within minutes of arrival. We're easy to find, just off the A38 main road. THE GIANT SWING: IT WILL LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS. Perched at the top of our cliffs, The Giant Swing hangs 50ft off the ground, 150ft over water. You’re hoisted to 80° then plunged 3-at-a-time over the lake. Just when you think there’s no turning back, you pull out of the dive and experience zero gravity, before doing it all again – backwards. First reactions (after recovery time): ‘I was floating on air for 20 minutes afterwards.’ ‘The most amazing thing I’ve ever done.’ ‘Awesome!’ ‘Someone’s gonna pay for this!’. ‘I want to go home now’.No need to book this either! Suitable for all ages 5 - 96 JUMP RIGHT OFF THE CLIFFS INTO OUR LAKE! COASTEERING with THE BLOB at Adrenalin Quarry is unique. Check out our videos and snaps on facebook. We’re the first coasteering venue where the action’s all Freshwater and children aged 10 or more can join in. We’re the only coasteering venue in the world where you feel like you’re on the set of Jurassic Park.Go wild swimming, traverse rockfaces, climb sheer cliffs then jump no-strings-attached into the lake. There’s always a safety boat on the water and BCF/SLSGB-qualified coasteering instructors guide you all the way. We’re also fully AALA registered. All this plus free entry, amazing views, bring your picnic and watch all the action from the viewing decks or down by the lake. Pets on leads are welcome, we're easy to find right by the A238 main road.

As someone who doesn't have a fear of heights or drops etc etc this doesn't really hold much interest for me. Did it as a family and booked a cheaper early deal. Got up early so we could get there for 9am for our booked slide only to find they don't open until 10. Luckily the nice people at the kart track let the kids and ladies use their loos, when staff arrived and were questioned we were told it's an admin error and they know it happens. Question is why they don't email those booked early and tell them, was with family so held tongue and walked away but I was fuming at their attitude. When I'm on holiday what I really want is an hour and a half hanging about in an empty car park . Some other activities here but main area is a complete bog if it's been at all wet.

Reviewed By Dorothy W - Eccleston, United Kingdom

Always wanted to visit the attraction so took granddaughter whilst on half term holiday at Newton Abbot. (Having bought a season ticket for Bicton Park and the Quay)
After a lovely drive over the moor we were a little disappointed at the attraction.
We expected the school to be a little more proactive instead of being talked to.(we used to visit the excellent Victorian school that was at Wigan pier years ago).
The one highlight to the visit was the fact it was Halloween and they had put a few extra things on.
However our granddaughter did enjoy the afternoon and my highlight was seeing my favourite county across the Tamar River.
Will not be visiting again

The Garden House

The Garden House is a 10 acre series of garden rooms, each planted differently, for seasonal interest. Visitors love the planting styles, 16th century ruins, bright colours and far reaching views over wild flower meadows. Children can roam free and find hidden corners and explore trails and trees. It is a wonderful place for garden enthusiasts, walkers and family visits. The tea room in the main house is renowned for freshly made treats and light lunches. A healthier options menu is very popular. Plants sold onsite at our well stocked plant centre are often propagated from the garden, so you will find interesting and unusual varieties that aren't commonly available elsewhere.

Tavistock is a town full of gifted characters and the Pannier Market illustrates this beautifully. Many local crafts are displayed for sale here. This historic building is currently being renovated and the traders rehoused temporarily, some in the nearby Butchers Hall This building has recently been restored, a interesting place. Well worth a visit. The Pannier Market, So much part of Tavistock’s fascinating history
